DATE & DETAILS
Sunday 17th March 10-4
In this full day workshop you will learn some basic metalsmithing, enabling you to make your own set of stacking rings in silver.
Using traditional tools, you’ll cut, file, solder and form. Use hammers and hand punches to add texture to the metal and even create and add embellishments. Finally you will finish your pieces with polish!
The number of rings you make will depend on how fast you work and how much you want to achieve. Your workshop kit will include enough silver to make several pieces. More metal is available to purchase on the day should you wish to do so.
This is fun beginners workshop in which you will learn useful techniques and take something beautiful away with you at the end of the day.
All you need to bring is a packed lunch and an apron or wear old clothes.
No previous skills required.
Kit Fee £10 payable to Sarah in class.
